Uploader's note: the original file names contained spaces in them. Since the LMA will not accept files containing spaces, I added dashes instead. I created a new flac fingerprint. Other than that, this is the exact source I downloaded from DAD.
"I believe this to be the source for all other multi-generation versions in circulation. The clue is the fade-in to "Dixie Chicken (Part 2)" here. Previously, both parts were contained in Track 15, and the same fades can be clearly heard therein. I've left the files here in separate tracks, rather than joining them. My own previous edition to this show, listed as SHN ID 107999, is from an incomplete source as well as being listed under the wrong date and venue. I'm extremely happy to correct that record with this new edition, which should now be definitive, (unless the master tape ever turns up. But I'm guessing it won't...) This here is a lovingly preserved and transferred 1st generation.
RIP Lowell and Richie. Missin' y'all even more, gentlemen..."

No doubt about it, this one represents the cream of the LF bootleg crop.

New First Generation Source Brings The Best Of This Show To Light
Been listening to this one all week and as Professor Goody said, it's pretty amazing what was left off of the bootlegger's version, how twenty minutes trimmed off the bone cut the heart right out of this show. From the first tuneup when Paul teases the crowd with a Texas Rose Cafe lyric about Houston, maybe the best slide solo by Lowell on a "Walkin' All Night" (illustrates beautifully that he wasn't worried about fast or fancy but perfect placement of a note or phrase) and a superb "Skin It Back" followed by Lowell's first chance to take the reins on "Fat Man", this is a great performance.
The best moment for me is when Lowell mentions that the "Dixie Chick" was one of the angels that live in Houston and Paul follows it with a line or two from "Roll Um Easy", which segues into a heart wrenching verse from "There Stands The Glass" sung by Lowell and accompanied by Billy on the piano that turns into "Willin'" and eventually an early and slightly different arrangement of "Don't Bogart" that includes "Last Call For Alcohol". The current incarnation of Little Feat make two great Lowell songs part of every show, and my all time favorite because it features so much of what he and they are all about, should probably be the third;
"Feats Don't Fail Me Now".
